Midwest Ghost Hunters – Paranormal Investigation of Edinburgh Manor

Midwest Ghost Hunters – Paranormal Investigation of Edinburgh Manor

August 18, 2019 0 By William Hollis


Today there is no trace of the original
Jones County poor farm in Scotch Grove, Iowa. Built in 1850 it was, according to a
local newspaper account in December 1909, an ancient frame structure built over 50 years ago and until a few years ago inmates were not provided with chairs but had to sit on the floor or benches. In 1910 the building was on the verge of
being condemned. County Commissioners recommended demolishing the building and building a new more modern facility. Today that building is known as
Edinburgh Manor. Built during 1910 and 1911 Edinburgh housed the insane the
poor and the elderly until 2010 when financial strain caused it to cease operation. We investigated Edinburgh on a rainy night in April 2019. Almost immediately strange things started to occur. During setup one of our investigators saw a flash of light come from the toy room. We have ruled out all man-made and natural causes such as car headlights lightning and camera flash While we investigated the entire
building the activity seemed to be centered on the first floor. In this next clip, caught again in the toy room, you will clearly see dust but you will also
see a strange light anomaly come from the bed cross, in front of our
investigator and disappear. Yet another strange light event that
occurred again happened in the toy room. This time it appeared that a lamp inside
the room came on. Except there are no lamps in this room. We had left the
overhead light on so the room was already well lit. Here is footage from
two different camera angles. Watch the room on the left. While we have not been able to confirm
there is rumor that a female resident was repeatedly raped during her stay at
Edinburgh. That would explain some disturbing EVPs that were captured. One of our investigators who was outside in our mobile command center clearly heard
a female’s agonizing scream coming from inside the building. This scream was not
heard by the investigators in the building but was caught on the camera
audio. It is very faint you may need earphones in order to hear. This was followed shortly by a female voice asking for help. And finally by a male
voice saying get off the bed. Is Edinburgh Manor haunted? This time we would have to say yes.
